Help with SSL Certificates

Hi Guys,

I need a little help setting up a certificate for my site. ATM when I log in I get a certificate that doesn't relate to my domain name (I assume its one relating to the host, or another users site..)
I have Cpanel access, and an option for SSL Manager. Under this I see 'Private Keys', 'Certificate Signing Requests' and 'Certificates'. But I have no idea how to actually set it up. I've seen a few places that offer free certificates, but how I get these onto my domain, I don't know.
Anyone able to offer some guidance?

Thanks! :)

Free certificates will still give your user a message about untrusted certificates.

I f*cking hate SSL certificates.

Do you have a dedicated IP for your site? You'll need one if you want a SSL certificate.

Ok, I can't recall the exact steps, I think this it;

1) Sign up at https://www.cacert.org/
2) In SSL manager in Cpanel, go to Certificate Signing Request and generate a CSR.
3) At CACert, click 'Server Certificate', and New.
4) Paste the CSR in here. Submit.
5) You'll then get your certificate. Paste this into 'SSL Certificate' in Cpanel.
Thats it.
